The Dynamic Duo… Together Again!

Ryan has been home now for five days.  Even after five days I can barely believe it. 

Oh this is a good sight to see every day.


That first night home, I was in awe of the fact that he was REALLY home!  After six long months, there he was…  I’m sure none of you will blame me for what I did next.

I put him to use!  I had gone far too long without him…

You ladies that have been through separations know what I mean…








That’s right!  I put him to WORK! 


Just kidding… that was a one time volunteer thing! 

Unfortunately I have no pictures of his homecoming.  I took my camera to the terminal when I picked Ryan up but got distracted (understandably I hope) and between that first moment in his arms and getting his bags into the car I ended up not taking a single picture.  So the next day we set up to do a mini photo shoot!

Here we are, back to being US once more without a moments pause.


 Well maybe a moment… and that first kiss?  No worries!  It was like coming home… and the other five million or so have been okay too!  πŸ™‚


 Oh how I missed him!


 I had quite forgotten how much two day old stubble can tickle…


How much fun we have together and how much I love to laugh with him.


And just how much I love to see a smile on his face.


I feel like I’m finally home again with him by my side…


So handsome!


So serious! πŸ™‚


What would a photo shoot with us be like without a completely goofy pose?


I thought I would have more to say… I thought there would be thousands of words flooding through my mind to tell you just how happy I am to have him home…  But the truth is that words can’t express my heart…  So pictures will have to do…


Here we are, once again, together in The Land of Fairy Tales.

Just us…


 Auf Wiedersehen!
